About myself

I was born in Naples, Italy, on June 22, 1979. I received the Laurea Degree (cum laude) in Telecommunication Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering both from the University of Naples Federico II, in 2005 and 2009, respectively. In 2009-2012 I received grants from the University of Naples for research in the field of indoor electromagnetic propagation, localization of unknown transmitters, and development of techniques for information extraction from high resolution SAR images of urban and natural areas. In 2012-2016 I have been a Research Fellow at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the University of Naples Federico II, working on projects regarding maritime surveillance with SAR data, sparse antenna arrays, and advanced SAR technologies. In 2014-2015 I was also with the Italian National Consortium for Telecommunications (CNIT), working on electromagnetic propagation in a harbor scenario and innovative computer network architectures. Currently, I'm a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the University of Naples Federico II. In March 2018 I obtained the Italian national habilitation as Associate Professor of Electromagnetic Fields. I'm a Senior Member of IEEE. I'm serving as Associate Editor for IEEE Journal of Selected Topics on Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing, IEEE Access and as Editorial Board Member for Remote Sensing (MDPI) and Natural Resource Informatics (MDPI).

My research interests are in the field of microwave remote sensing and electromagnetics, with particular focus on modeling of the electromagnetic scattering from natural surfaces and urban areas, SAR signal processing and simulation, information retrieval from SAR data, and remote-sensing techniques for developing countries.
